Vinton Construction is onsite completing concrete placement on Benjamin Street, Barry Avenue, and Cindy Circle. Following the concrete placement, Payne & Dolan will be onsite to fine-grade these streets. Tentative asphalt paving dates are 8/12 and 8/13; however, these dates are subject to change due to the weather. Full access to driveways will be restored following the asphalt paving in these areas. ESI will continue to be onsite restoring areas disturbed by construction throughout the week.

Vinton Construction is onsite this week to continue stripping the subgrade along Barry Avenue and Cindy Circle and installing new road base before continuing removals on Benjamin Street. These removals include all asphalt, curb & gutter, and driveway aprons similar to the work performed on Barry Avenue and Cindy Circle before stripping the subgrade and installing new road base. Note: Residents may not have access to their driveways for approximately two hours as the construction crew works along Barry Avenue and Benjamin Street. Driveways will be temporarily ramped with stone, and residents will have full access to their driveways once the crew moves past their house. Drivers are advised to be cautious of heavy machine equipment while driving on these roads. Those who need immediate access or have trouble getting in or out of their driveways are advised to inform the onsite representative, who will provide assistance. Vinton Construction plans to begin slipping concrete curb & gutter along Barry Avenue on Monday (7/26), depending on the weather.

Vinton Construction is also onsite today (7/15) to begin road removals along Benjamin Street, Barry Avenue, and Cindy Circle. This includes all asphalt, curb & gutter, and driveway aprons. Note: Residents may not have access to their driveways for approximately one to two hours as the construction crew works west along Barry Avenue, removing the road and installing new road base. Driveways will be temporarily ramped with stone, and residents will have full access to their driveways once the crew moves past their house. Drivers are advised to be cautious of heavy machine equipment while driving on these roads. Those who need immediate access or have trouble getting in or out of their driveways are advised to inform the onsite representative, who will provide assistance.

As of yesterday (7/14), all concrete work along Beutel Road, Viola Circle, and Randy Circle has been completed. All concrete is suitable for pedestrian traffic. However, seven days of curing time is required for vehicular traffic on the new concrete. Note: Payne & Dolan will be onsite during the middle of next week to begin fine-grading roads and prepping for asphalt soon afterward. Notice will be given beforehand on when asphalt will be paved. Residents who need immediate access to their driveway before the asphalt work begins are advised to inform the onsite representative, who will provide assistance.

July 6, 2021

Vinton Construction will continue paving curb & gutter along Beutel Road, Viola Circle, and Randy Circle today (7/6) before pouring sidewalk and drive aprons for the remainder of the week, depending on the weather. Residents may not have access to their driveways as the concrete cures for approximately two to three weeks, depending on what date it was poured. Barricades will be set up once the apron is poured and removed when it has cured enough for traffic. Residents are advised to be cautious of truck drivers and heavy equipment as crews continue to work down the road this week. Everyone’s patience and understanding during this project is appreciated.

Additionally, a concrete crew will be hand pouring sidewalk and curb & gutter throughout the project limits, including driveways on Thomas Circle. Poured driveways may be inaccessible for approximately two weeks.

Note: For those who live on roads affected by the reconstruction, including Beutel, Viola, Randy, Benjamin, and Barry, the post office has set up a mail bank on Thomas to facilitate regular scheduled postal deliveries during construction.

June 7, 2021

Gulseth is installing water mainline north down Benjamin Street before working their way west along Barry Avenue for the remainder of the week. An additional water crew is on site, installing water service leads west along Beutel Road. Residents who live west of Viola Circle towards Holden Street should be prepared for water shutoffs throughout the week as the work is completed. Residents will receive notices beforehand, except in the case of emergency shutoffs due to any potential water main breaks.

Additionally, Vinton will be installing storm sewer along Beutel Road this week. Intersections may be blocked for periods of time as heavy machinery will be operating, so drivers are advised to use caution if they are entering or exiting Beutel Road. All mainline has been installed along Beutel Road and is currently in the process of being tested for safe water samples and proper pressure throughout the week.

May 26, 2021

Gulseth will be installing watermain in the intersection of Buetel and Randy today and from the intersection at Beutel road and Randy up into the cul-de-sac, Thursday (5/27). It should take the entire work day Thursday to complete the cul-de-sac.

May 24, 2021

Water main has been installed along Beutel Road from STH 32 west to Viola Circle. This section of water main has been chlorinated and will be pressure tested tomorrow (5/25/21). Two passing safe samples will be taken this week before an additional crew installs water service laterals for the water main along the east side of Buetel Road starting on Wednesday or Thursday.

Today, we are installing water main from Beutel Road north to the end of Viola Circle. We will continue working our way west along Beutel Road from Viola Circle toward Randy Circle for the remainder of the week. Residents may not have access to their driveway for about an hour as we work past their house. Mailboxes close to the road will be removed and reinstalled once the trench is backfilled in front of each house. We plan to notify residents the day before we work past their house so they have time to move their car.
